CareerAhead: prepare for your career

Prepare for the world of work with CareerAhead

CareerAhead at the International Study Centre will help you prepare for the world of work by developing your skills in key areas such as communication, time management, problem solving and teamwork.

What is CareerAhead?

CareerAhead activities are designed to give you a head start in the global graduate employment market after leaving university.

During your studies you will have the opportunity to develop key employability skills and the confidence needed to secure a great graduate job. We will help you identify and develop your strengths and create a personal development plan to work on throughout your time at Coventry University London.

You'll also have the opportunity to build up work experience by taking up part-time employment or a work placement during your studies. Find out more about working rights as part your visa.

When you progress to your university course, you will be confident that you have the skills needed to be successful in a professional working environment.

Work after study

Start your career in the UK with the new Graduate Immigration Route – a 2-year post-study work visa for international students graduating from UK universities. If you begin your studies after autumn 2020, you’ll be able to work for up to two years after graduating with your valid Tier 4 visa. Study a pathway programme and take the first step towards working in the UK.
